Exploring

I finished off one of those “explore” projects, stitch markers made from little charms and “stuff” that was hanging around in my beading supplies.  I will never make them again…at least not without taking lessons in how to close jump rings.  Nope no photos.

Then I decided I better explore that Shiny Brite tree upstairs before I have to dust it.

Far Guy helped for awhile I conned him into thinking that back and forth was worth a few steps.

It snowed most of the day…not sure how much we got 4 maybe 5 inches.

It was a good day to put all the Shiny Brites away.  I bought a new storage container for some of the most collectable ornaments. I still have to place some notes in that new storage container about the ornaments…what they are and why they are special.

Better late than never.

  4. And here I thought I was the only person who still had Christmas stuff lying around. At least mine is in the basement. Just need hubby (and his longer arms and better muscles) to put it away. Glad to hear you both are getting better.

  7. So glad to hear that everyone is getting better by the day. It's a sad day when the Shiny Brite tree is put away for another year.

  8. Isn't it nice to get back to normal after you've h ad a bout of illness. Just the little things you do help you feel better. So glad you guys are feeling better and thank you for the little view of the snow coming down! I know Iowa has had a bunch too but take heart...the daffodils are up 3 inches here so it won't be long now! The tree is still beautiful and truth be told I my mantle is still decorated....one of these days! LOL!

  9. You aren't really that late in putting it away, Christmas actually lasts until Candlemas on February 2nd. I leave my Nativity set up until then.

  10. Great photos of the tree with a glimpse of winter outside. I just shoveled 4-5" of snow off the driveway and sidewalk. It's supposed to be bitter cold (-25°F) here the next few days. I don't think the snow is going to melt anytime soon.

  13. Ah! Goodbye to the Shiny Brite tree for another year. With all the work it is to put it up that tree deserves to be up a couple of months, for sure!

    We barely got any snow here--just a little. Supposed to be another snowstorm moving through. I hope we get some this next time. I'd love 4-5 inches of a white blanket out there. :)

  14. I always love seeing your shiny brite tree. Those ornaments remind me of all the ones we had when I was growing up. It is kind of sad to see it come down but I guess it gives something to look forward to next year!

  15. Sometimes take the tree down and storing ornaments can seem like such a big job and after Christmas and New Years we just don't feel up to doing it

  16. Great photos of the Shiny Brite tree!! With the fresh snow it seems quite 'right' to have the tree still decorated.

  17. I like your photos! I think that tree was waiting until you both felt a bit more shiny brite!
